  • It’s not archeological site , it’s museum. Nice climate about the mountain clouds everywhere in this museum. Get your own car , there are no taxi there. Lucky that I met a nice gentleman he take me back to my hotel.
  • $3 to get in..some interesting facts are shared. They have guides that speak English, which is great. They translate everything they said in Spanish..meaning they have to say it twice in a different languge.i have trouble thinking of a word in one language I bet they don't wanna talk to anybody when they get off work.
